Aftab Gaffar, Rugby First Managing Director, said: “I am absolutely delighted to see that the event has sold out. This just goes to show how popular and diverse the Rugby town centre offer is. I appreciate that those who have been unable to get a ticket will be disappointed but it’s worth reminding people that these retailers operate in the town centre throughout the year.
“These along with other businesses offer a diverse mix of competitively priced quality goods and services along with excellent customer service – so please take the opportunity to visit them.”
Aftab added: “I am also really pleased that all profits from the Show will be going to the inspiring local charity The Matt Hampson Foundation so thank you to everyone for supporting this event.”
